Mean World

Sometimes life feels too short
And the world reminds us too often
So I wonder why we still wait…
Why we still leave things unsaid
Why we still hurt and burn within
Why we live alone right from within
The world around refuses us the peace
It presses against the promises we make
It steals the sincerity and confidence we have
It makes us think we’ve lost ourselves
That others have won and we are no more
There is a loneliness no one seems to understand
That which puts us in an odd capsule
Of sadness and silence no one hears a word
We scream but doesn’t seem loud enough
We cry, the tears don’t seem liquid enough
We talk, the words don’t seem expressive enough
We stop…we age from within
and every day we die a little more.
